Hikkaduwa is one of the best tourist attractions of Sri Lanka. Especially famous for its nicer, longer, unspoiled, and not so crowded beach. This long stretch of beach famous among many European tourists who come to Sri Lanka.
Our Stay at Hikkaduwa Sri Lanka
Normally I do love to visit Hikka Beach during our vacations. Last time we went there before the pandemic situation. We booked our hotel earlier, because many beach line hotels were fully booked on weekends.
We stayed in a hotel called Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon. The hotel was fully crowded. Mainly because of tourists who spent their holidays in Sri Lanka. Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon is facing to the beach. That’s why tourists love to stay there as it is gives easy access to the beach.
I’ll write a review about Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon hotel in one of my future articles.

Hikkaduwa is most famous for its living corals in South Asia. If you are in or plan to go Hikka , visit coral reef using a glass boat.
Last time when we visited in Hikka, we decided to go and see Coral reef again after many years. The company which we hired offered life jackets to put on. Then the ride began. It was a wonderful speed boat ride. Ride reminded me the ride we had when we were on Phuket.
After few minutes, the boat stopped in the middle of the sea. The guy inside the boat gave us some buns and breads to feed fish. Feeding fish in middle in the sea was a totally fantastic thing to do. There were many different colors of fish swimming in the sea. If you are ride with kids, I am pretty sure they will enjoy it a lot.
Unfortunately, most of corals were dead because of human activities. But don’t worry as some are still alive with different shades of colors.
If my memory is correct the boat ride starts from $15 from one person. It will be a very worthy travel experience. Enjoy and make a beautiful memory.
I was focusing and enjoying beauty of corals. By doing so I was not able to capture any corals photos.
